Today it is owned by luxury brand mogul, Laurence Graff. Under the auspice of winemaker Morne Vrey, Delaire Graff has amassed a host of awards and is listed as a ‘first growth’ producer by Tim Atkin MW. The crown jewel is produced in honour of the proprietor, assembling the very finest from the incredible estate.

‘Worthy icon label, 2012 compromises 5 best barrels of Cab Reserve with 4% splash of petit Verdot. Class shows in purity of fruit & subtle detail, rather than raw power. Seductively plush with endless finish.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2012, 5*
‘Sourced from the same vineyard as the Reserve Cabernet, this pure Cabernet is cut from the same stylistic cloth but has even more finesse. Floral, mineral-edged and refined, it’s a remarkable wine that showcases the best of Stellenbosch. As ever, the tannins are finely judged, supporting rather than overwhelming the wine. Drink: 2015-24’ – Tim Atkin 2015 SA Wine Report, 97/100
